If you REALLY want the JBL system....I am about to rip out my JBL amp. I still have my JBL head unit and the rear speakers at my other place in Cape Cod. Its been sitting for a year or two but I see no reason why it wouldn't work. I haven't replaced the front speakers yet, but they will be replaced at the same time the amp is.

Wiring from the head unit to the amp is stupid simple. There's only two or three wires IIRC, its all digital. The only pain in the butt you'd have is wiring the amp up for power and to the speakers. If this sounds acceptable to you, then I will be back in Cape Cod in november and I will package up what I have there. I will throw you a good deal, seeing as I'm not doing anything with the gear, its just collecting dust.

I appreciate the offer, but as I've done some research and I think that I will take a different route. I'm sure someone on here will jump at that system....

If you like the sound of the JBL system then perhaps you should look into one of their aftermarket amps, paired with a good set of door speakers. I and a few others I know have run their amps and they're always clean, clear and seemingly bullet proof. I had a dual coil Kicker SB sub running off one of their 2 channel amps for the longest time and it was flawless.

Goodluck
